Configuring Shortcuts


Shortcuts in WebDigAIRange are valid for specific areas of the application only (i.e. namespaces).

For example: It is not possible to define a Calendar shortcut like "openDayView" in the area of Global shortcuts. "openDayView" works in the Calendar area only. You can find an example configuration at the bottom of this page.

GlobalGlobal shortcuts, available throughout the entire application.
CalendarCalendar shortcuts, available on the overview calendar.
SchedulingScheduling shortcuts, available on all configured scheduling pages.

Toolbar Shortcuts

Toolbar shortcuts are configured per toolbar button in the toolbar section of the settings.json (see the Toolbar section on the Main Configuration Settings page).


Shortcut definition syntax

A shortcut is defined as an array. In its easiest form this contains a single character ["a"] which makes this key the trigger. For more advanced key combinations add more values.

To look up non-alphabetical key identifiers it is advised to use an online tool (e.g.

Note: System shortcuts, like Alt + Tab, and browser shortcuts, like Alt + d, cannot be suppressed by WebDigAIRange. It is possible to define and use them, but the original action will still be triggered additionally.

Modifier Keys

Among the values in the definition array can be a single modifier key. Valid values are:

  • alt
  • ctrl
  • meta
  • shift

"meta" is also known as: Windows key on Windows / Command key on Mac / OS key

Example: "currentWeek": ["alt", "c"]
